A loan of $600 helped to buy plaster, paint, sockets and cables to finish work on his room in the home where he lives with his parents.

Ramiro's story

Ramiro is single and has no children. He lives in his parents’ house, where he stays in a small room with adobe walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the Padilla area in the city of El Alto.

Ramiro only studied until the end of high school, and he currently works for more than 10 hours a day as a building assistant. He works on all kinds of constructions, and uses the money he earns to cover his own food costs and to provide basic services for his family.

Ramiro has applied for this loan to buy plaster, paint, sockets and cables. He wants to use these items to finish work on the room that he stays in at his parents’ house, so that he can be more comfortable and have a better quality of life. Ramiro’s dream is to be able to go to university, where he wants to study a degree that will afford him a better life and allow him to help his parents. This is the second time he has asked for a loan from IMPRO, and the first that he has asked for a Kiva loan.
